Paterson Still Working On Bottle Bill Solution

ALBANY—There doesn’t seem to be much progress on a legislative fix to the expanded bottle deposit law, even as lawyers representing the state prepare to argue, in federal court on Wednesday, against a lawsuit alleging it is unconstitutional.
At an event praising Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court I asked Paterson about the bill, and he said he’ll talk about it tomorrow.
“We’re talking to the handlers and the bottlers about trying to work out a solution that will be amenable,” he went on. “They feel that they’ve been hit too hard in this action. And I don’t know that they have a legal remedy, but they certainly have an equitable remedy, and that’s what we’re talking about.
